Empower your artistic experience and “paint with fire” in this intermediate to advanced, one day encaustic wax workshop with Penny Treese at Spruill Center for the Arts.

For students who have established a relationship with layering wax, this class will elevate your work to a new level.  Instructor Penny Treese takes participants through a series of new techniques that progress into an open dialogue about the content of paintings. This class delves into what inspires each artist and moves beyond technique to guide individuals through the creation of a successful work of encaustic art.

Experienced encaustic wax painters will enhance their current  methods with exciting new techniques that will aide in developing a consistent body of work. This one-on-one teaching environment allows experienced students to advance to a new level of work.

Techniques to be explored include: Creating pigments-translucent to opaque in a range of hues and tones, scraping layers, accretion texture, oil paint washes, embedding/embossing objects, dripping and oil stick rubs, and creating a glass-like to raised textural surfaces.

Previous encaustic experience is required for this class. This is an intermediate/advanced level workshop. Contact Penny Treese with questions about requirements.

The Materials Kit is $35, payable to the instructor at the workshop. See the supply list for additional items to bring to the class.

Create photo-encaustic paintings using secrets and techniques refined by Penny Treese, a juried Decatur artist.

Students might use water, wine, natural pigments, found objects or steel wool to create texture. Guided experimentation with printing on fine art paper such as mulberry, tissue or other translucent papers will be included. Psychological depth of individual pieces will be explored during class. Each student receives a pre-workshop “image planning” session with the instructor prior to class via phone or email to select images for the class.

This is an introductory level class. No experience is necessary to participate. However, it is recommended students consider  “An Intro to Encaustic” workshop as a prerequisite course.

Imagine proudly looking over your final encaustic wax painting created during this one day workshop led by local artist Penny Treese. Blooms and bursts of vibrant color result from the use of blowtorch techniques, layers of pigmented wax, and various sized wax dipped brushes. Learn to create delicate marks and even feather colors in layers to produce the final image.

Students first create savory color palettes by learning to combine appropriate proportions of oil pigment to wax. The class progresses from painting on small surfaces with focus on composition to later using large substrates where repetition of mark making and “sizing up” is the concentration. Students are encouraged to incorporate happy accidents, discovered during the small surface portion of class, into the final 18×18” painting.

Students will leave with one 18×18” painting along with smaller studies/masterpieces created during the one day workshop. This collection provides students with a foundation for a body of work that can be grown as it develops.

This is an intermediate to advanced level class. Suggested pre-requisites are An Intro to Encaustic workshop and an Advanced Encaustic workshop. See links below for upcoming pre-requisite class options. Contact Penny Treese with questions about requirements for this workshop.

OCT 12 – Spruill: Techniques in Photo-Encaustic Painting

Techniques in Photo-Encaustic Painting by Penny Treese

Spruill Center for the Arts Encaustic Workshops, Dunwoody Georgia

Monday, October 12th
10AM until 4PM

Learn several of Penny’s unique techniques and secrets in manipulating images to create photo-encaustic paintings. Add texture to your photos by distressing with water, wine, found objects, steel wool, natural pigments and more. Explore printing and manipulating photos on translucent papers like mulberry, tissue, and other fine art papers. Photos printed on Japanese papers then saturated with natural beeswax and fused, create luminous results to enhance your work’s visual narrative. Learn how layering photos, tearing or cutting your photo then reassembling, and applying washes can create a psychological depth to your carefully chosen photographs. Class includes a pre-workshop “image planning” session with the Penny via email or phone. Penny will guide you through choosing the best photos for this medium and unique workshop.

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED – Intro to Encaustic recommended.
